    My ds has been begging my dh to take apart my old broken down Brother CS6000i. They decided today would be the day. Here are some pictures of them together, with pictures of the inside too.

    No, it's dead. The motor was out. I only paid $149 for it. I've since gotten a new Brother.

    Looks awful inside. Very... blech. Not cool like old machines. Wish I hadn't seen this. I have a Brother HS 2000, gonna try to forget what I saw.

    Amazing how clean the inside is. Always imagined they would get packed with lint. Very interesting, nice post.

    My husband once took apart my machine, unstuck a frozen part that wouldn't turn and pieced it all back together. It was pretty scary, but I sewed on it for another two years. It was his way of avoiding spending money.
